Summary
  • "Shanahan examined diets around the world known to help people live longer, healthier lives--diets like the Mediterranean, Okinawa, and "Blue Zone"--and identified the four common nutritional habits, developed over millennia, that unfailingly produce strong, healthy, intelligent children, and active, vital elders, generation after generation. Dr. Cate shows how all calories are not created equal; food is information that directs our cellular growth. Our family history does not determine our destiny: what you eat and how you live can alter your DNA in ways that affect your health and the health of your future children. She offers a prescriptive plan for how anyone can begin eating The Human Diet."--
  • "Deep Nutrition revolutionizes the way we think about food by showing how dietary choices affect us down to the level of our DNA. Once a world-class athlete plagued by debilitating injuries, physician and biochemist Cate Shanahan was determined to cure her own ailments. So she researched diets from around the world that have been proved to help people live longer, healthier lives--diets from places like the Mediterranean, Okinawa Island, and the Blue Zones--and she identified four common nutritional habits that for generations have unfailingly produced strong, healthy, intelligent children and active, vital elders. These four nutritional strategies form the basis of what Dr. Cate calls the "Human Diet": fresh food, fermented and sprouted foods, meat cooked on the bone, [and] organ meats. By adhering to this Human Diet, Dr. Cate cured her own ailments and has since helped countless patients and readers of the original self-published edition of Deep Nutrition achieve their own optimum health. In this revised and updated edition of the self-published phenomenon, Deep Nutrition shows how anyone can follow the Human Diet to: improve mood; calm allergies; eliminate cravings and the urge to snack; boost fertility and give birth to healthier children; sharpen cognition and memory; build stronger bones and joints; get younger, smoother skin. Not all food is created equal. Real food contains ordered information that can direct our cellular growth in a positive way. Our family history does not determine our destiny. What you eat interacts with your DNA in ways that affect your health and the health of your future children. Cutting through conflicting nutritional ideologies, Deep Nutrition is a groundbreaking, life-changing work that combines science with common sense to illustrate how the traditions of our ancestors can help us all lead longer, healthier, more vital lives."--Dust jacket
